    • Why it's Cult

      Stripping back unnecessary packaging and misleading ingredients, The Ordinary offers an abundance of brilliant, high-performance products – but the brand has outdone itself with this innovation. Ladies and gentlemen, meet your skin’s new best friend: vitamin C powder. Vitamin C has long been exalted for its brightening, skin-unifying, age-defying powers – but it’s often difficult to keep stable and effective. That’s why this ultra-fine powder is so good, as it provides the most direct exposure of extremely high concentrations of vitamin C topically. Expect a strong tingling (but non-irritating) sensation as your skin adjusts in the first 1-2 weeks.

A suspension of very fine L-Ascorbic Acid powder, this formula provides the most direct exposure of extremely high concentrations of vitamin C topically.

    • How to use

      Mix a small amount with other treatments in the palm of your hand and apply to face in the AM or the PM. A tingling sensation can be expected after application. Do not mix with formulations containing Niacinamide or EUK 134.

      If topical Vitamin C is used as part of skin care, it should be applied at alternate times with EUK 134 or Niacinamide (ideally Vitamin C in the PM and EUK 134/Niacinamide in the AM). Otherwise, EUK 134/Niacinamide can affect the integrity of pure-form Vitamin C (L-Ascorbic Acid).

    The Ordinary - 100% L-Ascorbic Acid Powder

    The Ordinary 100% L-Ascorbic Acid Powder Reviews

    Strong but useful and versatile
    Strong as it's pure Vit C, great for mixing with other stuff. I mix it occasionally with Lactic Acid or Hyaluronic Acid. I do not use it often. There was some tingling but nothing too annoying. (I have combo skin prone to acne, a little bit on the sensitive skin side)
    OK
    I have sensitive skin so I thought a powder form of vitamin C would be very easy to work into my morning routine. I tried using it mixed in with my serums, creams and even sunscreen. And I found that it still burns sometimes and my skin flares up like a mini chemical burn. I'm not mixing it with anything it shouldn't be mixed with and haven't used it after using retinoids or acids the night before. So, I am still confused as to why it causes a reaction on my skin sometimes. With all that being said, I still didn't see a change even on the days when it doesn't flare up my skin
    Tanning
    Everyone says vitamin C brightens the skin and reduces pigmentation but this product has tanned my skin rather than brightening it. My skin looks duller since I have started using it, my sister has also observed the same effects.
    By far the best Vitamin C product I have ever used!!
    I have been using this Vitamin C powder as an all over body treatment. I mix this into either almond oil or organic pure shea butter. This has dramatically improved the hyperpigmentation I have had on my arms and legs. Any scratches that have caused pigmentation I have had has nearly gone or they are nearly invisible. I go through a little tub a month and I use this daily after showering. It did tingle slightly but you build up a tolerance fairly quickly. I would recommend this not only for the face but for the body as well.
    Awful
    I love all the Ordinary products I have used so far, but this one is awful. My skin was full of huge cysts after couple of days. Plus the smell is horrible smells like rust all day long. it did not mix well with heavy moisturisers plus I have not seen any brightening or benefits.
    Effective one
    I like this powder, I can see changes for my skin already after 2 weeks (I was using every other morning, 1 scoop with my usual tonic portion and then cover it with moisturizer). My skin tone became more light, even, the pigmentation spots got more pale and exfoliating got more gentle and fast. At first I experienced some stinging and redness on my skin. But it was for 2 minutes on first 2-3 times when I used it. No more complaints!
    Great product if used correctly
    My favourite Vitamin C product so far! Must be careful not to use too much and also should not be mixed with certain products (such as acids, peptides, niacinamide, etc.). I prefer mixing it with The Ordinary's Natural Moisturising Factors cream or Squalane based granactive retinoids (right before using it, I mix it on my hand). Can also be mixed with water but I find that to be very messy. Should start using it at a small dose and once a week and increase it gradually (to avoid burns and such). It helps get rid of acne and also quite visibly brightens skin. I feel like I can see a difference immediately in the morning!
    great
    I like the powder - I notice my skin is much brighter. Will repurchase.
    Be careful
    I noticed no difference to my skins brightness, this product caused my skin to get red burns maybe? Like patches of sore red skin. Very irritated. Very drying even on my super oily skin also smells gross if you don't wash hands straight away. Smells like meat. Also leaves an orange tinge on my fingers! Thought it was rust! Very sad as heard such good things!
    Perfect if used correctly...
    I use this twice a week and mix it with a very hydrating moisturiser as it does dry your skin, but if this does happen, then moisture again straight after. You only need the tiniest bit of powder, don't use a whole scoop as you will find it really gritty on the skin and it doesn't sit well. I use twice a week after my thicker serum, mixed in with my moisturiser and it really does brighten the skin...
    Awful
    One word: dermatitis. Even if used in a tiny amount and mixed with a soothing cream, oils or vitamin E. Odd because I haven't had this reaction from any other vitamin C products.
    Amazing.
    Best vitamin C product I used so far. Improved my pigmentation on my forehead plus my skin looks great.
    L Ascorbic Acid
    It's quick and easy mix with Vit E oil . I only apply at night so far so good.
    Leaves an orange tinge on hands.
    I'm not sure how I feel about this product, the powder chunks up and the dispensing of it out of the jar is quite messy. I've been mixing this in with an avene hydrating serum at night but I haven't really seen any immediate results as what I've seen with the Clinique Vit C sachets. Also, when I don't wash my hands straight away, the next morning my palms have an orange tinge like what you'd get if you applied sun tan lotion which I found really surprising. This product has a lot of rave reviews so I do want to persist with it but so far I'm not too impressed.
    Brightening
    I guess it mostly depends on which cream you mix it with, but so far I'm so glad I give this a try. Just a bit less then the full little spoon (that comes in the package) is enough for the whole face and neck. It mixes easily and quickly, tingles a little when you apply it, but only lasts few seconds then my skin is smooth and glowing, ready for the day to come! Thank you Claudia for the tip, I'll try to mix this into my legs cream too!
    Nice change
    I have used Vitamin C 23% and thought I'd try this next, and mix it in with the Ferulic. Very little powder is needed to turn it into a milky paste. I prefer this one so far, as it doesn't sit on top of my skin like the other Vit C 23% suspension.
    Use with caution
    I was getting great results with this. I was using it mixed with my usual moisturiser in morning. Then I started using it at night. After a few days I woke up one morning to find the skin just below my neck covered in eczema. It did not affect my face in this way. After a few days, I began using it again in the mornings but found it caused eczema on my neck. I do hope to use it again but I'm a bit wary.
    The Ordinary 100%L-ascorbic acid powder!
    I am not one for writing reviews but this powder surpasses all my expectations. I ordered it after reading so many positive reviews about it. My God, it did not fail to impress me. I suffer from hyperpigmentation and I have used so many high-end products with no good result. The very first day I bought this powder, the next morning I was surprised by the result. It was literally starting to clear the hyperpigmentation areas on my face. I can honestly tell you that I am hooked on it now and it has become a big part of my everyday skin care beauty product. I don't think I will ever be without it. Measurement is very tricky but once you've got it right you will understand what I am talking about. My skin can tolerate one measuring spoon
    Love Love Love The Ordinary - 100% L-Ascorbic Acid Powder
    I have been using this powder on and off for over a year to give my skin radiance boost. I have mixed this powder with about 5 of The Ordinary's other products and I got the best results with the 100% Organic Cold-Pressed Rose Hip Seed Oil. These two together = Power Couple!!! I use it at night cause of the smell. I noticed my old acne scars disappearing within a week. It's my go to post break out routine. The sting was strong for the first 3-4 days and then it was fine. It did irritate my neck at first but that also gradually stopped.
    Absolute best
    Philosophy has a turbo booster vitamin C powder. I used to use that so much. That one is expensive plus they only give you 7 grams. This one is just like that plus so much product. You have to know how to mix it and it will give you the best results. I mix it with Cosrx snail serum on palm of my hand and rub it in my palm till it completely dissolves. After I put it on, I use a 50+ sunscreen. You will see the brightening same day. I use 3/4 part of spoon. If using for the first time, only use 1/4 of the spoon.
    Super efficient
    The brightening power is insane - my scars and pigmentation spots are faded within 2 weeks of use. Highly recommended
    Fab
    I've been using this for just over a week now and I can see a huge difference in my skin. I haven't had any issues at all (except my hands have turned orange?). I have been using it alongside the Retinol 1% and they seem to be working really well together for my skin.
    Daily
    I mix it with my other serums for extra vitamin C benefits.
    Not too happy with this
    Warning: I had big problem when used on my neck. Very raw, sore and bumpy skin. Didn't have the same problem with my face, and I am not even sensitive skin type. So be careful!
    Excellent
    Excellent product for it's pice and it does work as well.
    Great but don't pre-mix
    I've been using this mixed with face creams or face oils. Honestly, it has helped brighten up just the red patches left by old spots. I pre-mixed a batch so I could take it when travelling - I know the powder is kept in a UV safe container but I thought it would be okay for a short time. It was not! It went yellow then orange and even when I was using it when it hadn't changed colour yet my face broke out in loads of little bumps. It's annoying because I'd rather not take the whole container with me travelling. So it does work but please don't pre-mix!
    Warning- this really messed up my skin.
    I bought this and used it mixed with my moisturiser and with other ordinary serums- yes it tingles (felt more like small needles pricking my skin) and I ignored it because you are to expect that. Well i carry on and it completely dried out my skin (jaw/chin area) to the point that it looked like small burns in 2 areas and the rest completely dried out and rough (pumice stone rough!!) and you know how foundation sits on dry skin, right? So I’m basically looking like some kinda zombie waiting for my skin to heal up- not happy at all. My skin can be a tad sensitive, it’s mostly oily in the t-zone- be very careful, ladies!
    I like it
    I like it, I mix it with the Resveratrol 3% + Ferulic Acid 3% only once per week (cause I have so many serums to use and it's not allowed to mix the ingredients between them) and I really like it.The only problem is that my pillow case gets an orange tint after this :(
    Brightening and helping to diminish acne scars
    This is really helping to dull my acne scars and is slowing resurfacing my skin. I mix a small amount with the Ordinary's hyaluronic acid in the pm, after showering. I look forward to seeing the improvements the next morning and am rarely disappointed.
    Great product.
    I loved this product, though a little bit goes a long way. I would recommend mixing into your usual facial moisturiser to make your skin glowy and radiant.
    Крутой продукт
    Лицо светится здоровьем. Небольшое количества порошка смешивала с кремом (утром и вечером). Моментальный эффект: кожа выглядит сияющей, здоровой. Очень довольна. "The face glows with health. A small amount of powder mixed with cream (morning and evening). Immediate effect: the skin looks radiant, healthy. Very satisfied."
    Wow
    A small amount of this powder added in your face treatment really do the difference. Aaaand you can also add a small pinch in your body cream like I do! The skin of my legs looks fantastic and seems to me that my cellulite looks less visible. Super!
    The Ordinary - 100% L-Ascorbic Acid Powder
